I probably shouldn’t have mentioned Charles Neil by name and I apologize both to him and to anybody who is offended by my poor choice of wording. I have a lot of respect for the man’s talents.
Please don’t interpret my questions as questioning his abilities.

The question was meant to be a general rhetorical question.

That book has caused me to think more about “producing” vs. “crafting” and the old days of apprenticeships and reaching a point where one takes on the moniker “master”. One person I think of nowadays is Philip Lowe. After watching him work, or watching the Doucette and Wolfe videos, I think anyone would appreciate what I’m trying to say.

When I hear about ww’ers who don’t own a handplane, that makes me wonder. I couldn’t imagine fitting a drawer or door without one.
